ABSTRACT

The irrigation structures such as bridges, culverts, weirs and syphons are the most important projects in development the countries. The aim of this study is to choose the most efficient irrigation contractors for government procurement based on a multi-criteria and data analysis. When proposals are presented, the awarding board will determine the tender assessment measures of the bids received in advance. The research recommend a decision-making framework to support the awarding board in this hard mission while retaining a clear process in line with government procurement rules and conditions, as well as ensuring equal and fair assessment of all proposals. In this respect, the cross-efficiency evaluation has been used among the eligible candidates to select the best contractor. The suggested methodology allows the evaluation of quantitative contractor choice data and preserves the transparency functionality required by government procurement. Additionally, all proposals are analyzed similarly without any subjective adjusting by the public officers according to the same quantitative weights. A case study linked to the tender of an Egyptian public organization for selecting the efficient irrigation contractors confirms the efficiency of this approach.
